CUMBERLAND, OK -- Citizen's tips helped sheriff's deputies in Marshall County seize more than $2 million in marijuana this week.

Deputies found more than 100 marijuana plants growing in a field near Cumberland on Thursday.

Deputies say it's obvious someone was taking care of the plants.

They also seized over 100 plants earlier this week in another rural area of the county.  Cumberland is just east of Madill.  Marshall County is located in southern Oklahoma on the border with Texas.
